Trend emulator – Base license pack


The Trend Emulator driver for Tridium Niagara 4 facilitates seamless integration between any Tridium instance (Web Supervisor or Controller) and a Trend 963 Supervisor. This integration empowers existing Trend Building Management Systems (BMS) to effortlessly incorporate third-party systems through the versatile Niagara Framework.

This driver establishes an emulated stand-alone Trend LAN for the 963 Supervisor to connect to. It creates one or more emulated IQ3 controllers, allowing these controllers to discover Points from the local Niagara 4 Station and export them as Sensors, Inputs, Drivers, Knobs, or Switches.

In addition to point discovery, the driver also supports the export of Tridium Schedules as Trend Time Zones, providing comprehensive control capabilities from the Trend 963 Supervisor. It's important to note that the driver operates in a 'Stand Alone' mode and is not configurable to sit on an existing Trend LAN. IC Comms connections to other Trend Controllers are not supported by this driver.

To implement this integration, the Trend 963 Supervisor can be configured with a new remote site connection, enabling the discovery of all emulated IQs and points for use in local graphics pages.

All Tyrrell-developed drivers include a software maintenance feature. Every new purchase of the driver will support the current release of Niagara 4(4.13) and the next release of Niagara 4(4.14), any subsequent upgrades will require a Trend emulator - Niagara version upgrade to be purchased.
